Purdue Row-A-Thon 2018 – Spectacular Success

Purdue Crew Supports LUM Good Samaritan Fund

The Purdue Rowing Team brought “Row-A-Thon 2018” to the Tippecanoe Mall (Lafayette) last Saturday — and drew excited crowds with their fun spectacle of rowing. Row-A-Thon is an annual charity event that raises funds for the LUM Good Samaritan Fund.

The Row-A-Thon event yields one of the largest donations to LUM each year — and this year they’re on pace to exceed their goal. If you weren’t able to attend Row-A-Thon you may still make a donation by mail or online (click HERE). Please make checks payable to Purdue Crew Club and mail your checks to: Purdue Crew—Row-A-Thon 355 N. Martin Jischke Drive West Lafayette, IN 47907.

Thanks to Purdue Crew president, Hannah Stefanik; Head Coach David Kucik; and the entire rowing team and coaching staff for their continued support of Lafayette Urban Ministry.
